    I just installed Boot Camp and XP. It works fine. It lets me pull up the OS boot menu, but if I don't hit anything, it defaults into XP.
    I want it to default into OSX.
    Is there an option for this? If so, where is it?

    Thanks in advance.

    System Preferences -> Startup Disk

    You can boot holding the option key down as well

    I did a search on this forum and didn't see any titles that caught my eye upon glancing.
    I'm pretty sure that just about any problem anyone here could run into, has already been had, asked about, and answered before... somewhere else. Sorry to ask a question... but thanks for the link. :D

    Also there is a bbot camp preferance pane in Windows Control panel which will allow you to reboot into OS X and mark the OS X partition as default.
